Lotus notes has many usability issues (or ‘features’ as they’re called). One of the most annoying is below:

None of these options allow you to exit without sending the request for more information. Maybe they should have actually tested with users?

  1. Wow. That’s a really old version of Lotus Notes. It’s not even supported any more. Did you know IBM Notes 9 is now available? http://www-142.ibm.com/software/products/us/en/ibmnotes
